+1 Lovely setting. Cute bird. Edit: nasty bird. >)https://globalnews.ca/news/4844790/great-tits-killing-eating-brains-migratory-birds-climate-change/Very nice shots, Hector.
The copy that I have borrowed is very good. On 600mm it is a tad sharper than 60mm. During the past 3 weeks on EOS-R the AF has been fast and consistent and keeper rate has been good and comparable to EF 100-400 LII for slow moving birds. For BIF, the combo struggles to consistently get good shots. There is an additional switch mode to override AF and stay there, but I have not used it yet. Perhaps it is more useful for BIF. Using it handheld is ok because of the balance of the lens as it is not front heavy. To carry, It fits into LowePro 450AW backpack. The 60-600mm range allows me to take this as the only lens for a day trip.Now you have had the 60-600mm sigmonster lens longer, what are your thoughts on its performance? There is little on the web, and it does have an intriguing focal length range.
ISv if only I could shoot that bird while digging!! I have fantasized about owning property in Costa Rica since returning and I turn green thinking about where you are shooting. Hmm, why no green envy emoji?Well, if he took the first one while digging - it's my favorite: it says DEDICATION!
Very nice collection Alan!Here are a few of my favourite tits.
Blue, Longtailed, Bearded, Coal, Great, and Marsh. Got plenty of work to do to get better pics and more species.View attachment 184712View attachment 184713View attachment 184714View attachment 184715View attachment 184716View attachment 184717
I was on a boat and about 14 of them took up residence on the bow of the boat for the day, so I suppose they approached us!I have never seen booby from so close. There are 3 species nesting on tiny islets around Oahu but all these are preserved territories, you are not suppose to land there. Otherwise boobies are very easy to approach (the reason for the name I think). My best photo of Brown Booby according to the exif file is taken from 133.35 meters (obviously the infinity point of the lens: it says the same even if I take a photo of the nearby island miles away...).
So, the light is basic but the distance to the object matters too (here I mean the small letters text under your photo)!
